The Best of eLearning in October 2016

October was packed with exciting events. We released Lectora® Online 3.2, started a new contest in the Trivantis® Community, announced pre-conference training, plus shared the awesome eLearning some of our customers are creating with Lectora’s Responsive Course Design™ (RCD).

Here are a few of the October eLearning highlights from Trivantis and around the web:

  • A case study that shows how MPHI created mobile-friendly eLearning using Lectora

I recently interviewed Jane Boyden and Laurie Taylor about the mobile-friendly video-based training they created for the State of Michigan. See how they did it, using Lectora’s Responsive Course Design.

  • This nice review of Lectora Online 3.2 on the eLearning Brothers blog

Our friends at the eLearning Brothers shared what they loved about our latest release of Lectora Online in this article on their blog: “5 Exciting Updates in Lectora Online 3.2.” And if you missed our webinar on this release, watch the recording with Trivantis Product Manager Daryl Fleary: What’s New in Lectora Online 3.2.

  • A different way to look at accessibility in this article

This Learning Solutions Magazine article shares how you can make your eLearning meet WCAG and Section 508 standards—plus go beyond the standards to really improve your content. Read it here: “Accessibility from the Ground Up: Without Glasses, You Couldn’t Read This Content.”

  • The article on technology accessibility was very useful, shedding light on many general issues that are dealth with by UX and LX departments.

    It’s also a sort of mission that can be carried out by LMSes – educational software that might be in the avant garde of inclusivie and possibly accessible data and thus making the chances even 😀
